    The strap is a tenner on eBay, but they are good ones for the money, Iíve had a few over the years, link here:

    The blue is nothing like the stock photo. In bright light, such as outside in the daytime it could pass as black. In soft light, as in indoors in the evening, it appears more blue but itís a much deeper blue than the stock photo suggests. Itís almost like two watches - at times a black & white one, at times a blue & silver one.

    Many thanks to electorn for this arrival today




    I'm giving the bracelet a run out to see how it feels. I quite like it but an Uncle Seiko waffle or tyre tread mght be the answer, or even the GL831 that came with it

    At the end of 2020, I spotted the Dailos Waveform being reviewed on a number of watch YouTube channels.

    I was very taken with it for a number of reasons.

    Firstly it was an affordable Titanium diver, something I'd been hunting for for a while, but nothing else had really appealled.

    Secondly, I really liked the look of the teal dial, something that I didn't have in my watch box.

    Finally, the bezel caught my attention, being ceramic, but designed to match the titanium case and with applied rather than engraved markings. I thought it was really different and very attractive.

    I missed the Kickstarter price, but still got it at a pre-order price and it arrived yesterday.



    First impressions are very positive.

    The case, bezel and dial finish are excellent, the overall effect being even more attractive first hand than the videos and photos had suggested to my eye.

    Notice, too, that they went to the trouble of matching the date wheel colour to the dial! Even Sinn can't manage that...

    It came in a box with a lovely soft watch roll, too.

    I will probably not get a chance to resize the bracelet until tomorrow, but so far it's looking like a good choice (one of three Kickstarter watches I'm expecting in the next few weeks).

    Love that colour combo, unsurprisingly sold-out...

    This arrived on Friday for my birthday. Itís a present for our 20th anniversary. Iíve always wanted one was thinking about getting a 2001 model but in the end went new as all my other watches have been used.

    Loving it and the bracelet on the 2021 is super comfy.




    Cheers, Shaun

    Looks great. I really fancy the new sapphire sandwich. The new movement is a fabulous upgrade imo.

    60th Birthday Incoming:

    It was my 60th birthday last week and I wanted to mark the occasion with something a little different and was offered the chance to buy a 1981 CWC G10 non lumed Navigator, which were exclusively issued to nuclear submarines. Apparently the tritium on the normal lumed version caused problems with the radioactive detectors on board, so the dial and hands were simply done with white paint and that also explains the absence of the circled T.



    According to those who compile the various records of these watches, only 13 of these fat case watches were issued across 1980 and 1981 and so far the whereabouts of only 3 or 4 of those are currently known about.



    Here is a picture with a 1980 lumed Navigator.



    My other incoming was a Mersey Travel pass issued to ‘older people who live in the Merseyside area’. This enables me to travel down to Chester up to Southport after 09:30 for free by bus, train and ferry. Not a bad freebie, but I honestly don’t feel like an older person.

    Thanks John, wasnít an easy decision and I certainly wonít be competing with the serious guys over on the MWR, but will keep an eye out for any 80-82 fat cases that come up for sale that I havenít got. Sort of like my version of the WWW watches
